In an effort to boost holiday sales, retailers nationwide are opening their doors earlier than ever to cash in on the holiday shopping season - and the Grand Strand is no exception.
While most stores are keeping with the tradition of opening in the early morning hours of Black Friday, others are attempting to up their sales figures by opening Thanksgiving evening instead. Nationally and locally a select list of retailers are starting their sales as early as 8 p.m. on Thursday, leaving just enough time for your Thanksgiving dinner to digest.
Whether you’re an early riser or after-dinner shopper, if you’re looking to score a deal or two on electronics, clothes, and more, then this list is for you. To help plan your shopping trip, we’ve compiled this guide of opening and closing times for Black Friday sales at big box stores, outlets, and malls on the Grand Strand.
